We review the current understanding of superconductivity in the quasi-one-dimensional organic conductors of the Bechgaard and Fabre salt families. We discuss the interplay between superconductivity, antiferromagnetism, and charge-density-wave fluctuations. The connection to recent experimental observations supporting unconventional pairing and the possibility of a triplet–spin order parameter for the superconducting phase is also presented.

74.70.Kn - Organic superconductors
74.20.Mn - Nonconventional mechanisms (spin fluctuations, polarons and bipolarons, resonating valence bond model, anyon mechanism, marginal Fermi liquid, Luttinger liquid, etc.)
75.30.Fv - Spin-density waves

Key words: superconductivity, antiferromagnetism, unconventional pairing.
